Green Energy Policy
Loews Hotels has a Green Energy Policy to be “committed to being environmentally responsible”. According to Loews’ website, “the company is thoroughly committed to reducing its environmental impact by actively participating in standards that are in harmony with the earth’s natural resources and direction.” Loews Hotels has partnered with Energy Star in addition to enacting a comprehensive eco-friendly policy across its 18 properties.
Some of the company’s “green” practices include:
Food donations in partnership with America’s Second Harvest
Loews “Adopt a Farmer” program sources organic, sustainable food from local gardeners and fishmongers 
Low-flow shower heads
Compact fluorescent light bulbs
Locally sourced fruits and vegetables on seasonal menus
Energy saving measures in kitchens and back-of-house recycling
Social responsibility and philanthropy
Loews has become more involved in supporting local communities and public schools by taking steps like partnering with DonorsChoose.
The Loews Good Neighbor Policy, created in 1990 by CEO Jonathan Tisch, earned the President's Volunteer Service Award, the highest honor given by the President of the United States for community service directed toward solving critical social problems. This policy includes multiple initiatives:
Donating extra food to local food banks, shelters and hunger relief programs.
Supporting local literacy programs by providing space for classes and volunteer instructors.
Undertaking extensive recycling programs and purchasing recycled products whenever possible.
Supplying used goods like linens and furniture to local organizations and shelters.
Encouraging volunteer activities for hotel employees.
Implementing energy-saving equipment in new hotels and existing properties during renovation.
Tisch authored a book, “Citizen You: Doing Your Part to Change the World,” that focuses on the idea of active citizenship and getting involved in tackling global challenges.
“This ‘New Activism’ is about the thousands of individuals and organizations exploring new ways to address social problems,” according to Tisch.
Loews has recently come under fire for its sudden reversal of its feral cat management policy, capturing and sending previously cared for animals to a local animal shelter, with a high likelihood of euthanasia.
Other socially responsible initiatives
To mark the twentieth anniversary of their Good Neighbor Policy, Loews held a Sunday Mother's Day brunch in 2011 and gave moms a $20 gift card to help fund educational projects through their charitable partner DonorsChoose, a web-based nonprofit that supports public schools in need.
Loews announced its “Happy Ever After” wedding package to celebrate New York’s passage of marriage equality in June 2011 by helping same-sex couples get married with special rates on wedding packages at Loews Regency in New York City.
Loews provided discounted rates at its Loews Ventana Canyon property for evacuees of the Monument and Antelope fires in Southern Arizona in June 2011.
